One more question, 12psi is even safe on the non-turbo motors? I read something about the B230FTs coming with thicker rods that could handle ~16psi, but was nervous to run more than 8-10. This engine will likely be pushed a bit here though I am considering an upgraded radiator and external oil cooler hopefully in the short future.
90+ b230s have slightly bigger rods, the problem is the higher comp ratio on the na motor though 12psi should be fine
